New Helvetia Brewing Company Tasting Room, 1730 Broadway, Sacramento, CA 95818

Thursday, July 31

Time: 6 pm to 8 pm

The Buffalo Brewing Co. was established in 1890 and became a staple of the Northeast of the U.S. until its end in 1945. Then, in the 1970s, two Sacramentans decided to revive the Buffalo brand. While the venture was honorable, it only lasted a year. Fast-forward to 2013 when a fourth-generation Sacramentan and a brewmaster teamed up to bring Buffalo Beer back to life in Sacramento, and thus New Helvetia was born. The brewery now serves a diverse tap list of draft beers, including a modern interpretation of Buffalo Craft Lager and several IPAs to satisfy any palette.

Note: Guests will get their first draft for free after RSVPing.
